Marla’s House of Hope is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the very best physical, psychological, and spiritual care for children who are neglected and/or abused.
We care for these children without regard for their race, religion, culture, national origin, financial status, or social status. Our long-term residential care is provided through a family setting centered around Christian love, example, and teaching. We strive to instill individual worth in each child while preparing them for responsible adulthood. Where possible, we work with the Ministry of Human Development to reunite each child with his/her family.

All of the children come to us from homes in crisis. These children are not orphans, but they are without a home because of abuse, neglect, and/or other difficult family situations. The children ranging from birth to Marla's House of Hope's new home17 years of age are removed from a difficult home situation by a member of the Ministry of Human Development for placement at MHOH. Many of the children have experienced such severe degrees of abuse that they face difficulty in adjusting to a "normal" home life. Many children have not had any new clothes or shoes in years.

All school age children attend Schools in the Belmopan area and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities. The House Mother, staff, and volunteers help the children with homework, direct them toward responsibility and high ideals with love, discipline, support, and example as well as guiding them through the normal developmental struggles.

The children attend church regularly and actively participate in church activities and attend Bible study classes.
